An effective website is one that is well designed, informative and easy for you, your staff or your volunteers to update without any technical skills. Content management systems like Joomla! and WordPress can easily and affordable provide a website solution that enables you to master your own website for little or no cost.
Both these online publishing systems are free and open source content management systems (CMS) that are fully extensible. You’ll be able to add more functions such as photo galleries, online shopping carts, online registration forms, donation buttons, surveys, event calendars, forums and online forms, as your organization grows and the value of your website increases. And, best of all, both of these free and open source content management systems are easy to update and maintain with a little training and a minimum of effort and there is no need for technical support once the website is built.
We offer three ways to build or rebuild your website:
1. We show you what you need to know to build your own website
We show you what it takes to to design and build a Joomla! or WordPress website in a three hour tutorial, online or in our fully equipped training room for $295.
We design the site plan and the look and feel of your website to your specifications. Once you approve the plan and the design, we frame in the content areas of your new website. Then, over two 3 hour sessions, online or in our fully equipped training room, we’ll show you (and, optionally up to two others) how to add, edit, update your content and maintain the website yourself thereafter. With this option, you’ll spend the most of your time adding the greatest value to your website — creating and posting content for your site visitors.
3. We design and build the framework of your new website, we add the text and images and then, when the website is finished, we show you how to add more content
We design, build, place, format and optmize your text and images on the new website. Then we show you (and optionally two others) how to update the content and maintain the website in a three hour training session after that. This is the fastest and easiest way to build or rebuild your website and requires the least amount of your time.
